Noah's ARC visit to Aliwell Barracks - KRH

I have been talking to the Commanding Officer and the Regimental Sergeant Major about the ARC visiting the King's Royal Hussars so members can have a look at the army today, have a climb around Challenger 2, have a go on the simulators to see if the make the grade today, look around the messes and then join the WO's and Sgt's mess for some fun and games in the evening. The RSM has also said he would try and get accommodation for all that attend.

This has been met by the CO and RSM with approval and the RSM has said he would gladly open the doors to Noah's ARC at anytime doing everything mentioned and maybe more.

As yet we do not have a date in mind, but I know that this has been met with great excitement by some of the members I have spoken to already. The question is how many members would be willing to drive down to Tidworth for this planned weekend of fun? I have told RSM Joey Clough I would put the word out there and then give him some feedback as soon as I can.

Gentlemen, if you are interested in doing this please let me know. I would suggest it is something we can do in the new year at some point. Once I get feedback I will work on a date with the RSM. I look forward to your feedback.

Can I just say how pleasantly surprised, and how very pleased I am to have received such amazing support for this idea. Firstly may I thank everyone.

Secondly: I have been asked by people to add their names to the list to attend. There is currently no list! I understand now how popular this idea is, and I will try to call the RSM tomorrow to get this idea into motion, but as yet it is very much just an idea which has the support of the King's Royal Hussars.

I did try to call the RSM today but he was not available to take the call, like I said I will try again tomorrow.

Initially I am thinking of asking for the 6th (departing on the 7th) February 2016, that is a Saturday, unless I hear of huge objections to that date of course.

Thank you once again
